It was a cold day here so I've been holed up in my workshop today, busily and happily creating Christmas stockings for the newest family members and giving another stocking a much-needed facelift. I mainly used felt for the stockings themselves, and for the cut-outs I used felt with heat-and-bond.
I was so tickled to be able to use a sweater collar on the cuff of this stocking. I had been saving it from when I made no-knittin' mittens last year from old sweaters. When I cut it off, I was worried that it might begin to fray. I put a little fabric glue around the cut edges, and it held perfectly so I sewed it on the front. I think it gives the stocking a Scandinavian look.
This plaid wool stocking (red felt on back) has a masculine look for the grandboy, and I just love the stag reindeer head too. I searched and searched for the pattern and finally found a copy in drawer and then hunted it down online for you in case you'd like to use it. There's a pretty poinsettia template too. Find them HERE at Midwest Living.
